In the Name-of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
Of Jesus Christ, I ask the following Graces:
First, I Pray Thee to-Give me a Lively Faith, in all that the Holy Roman Church, teaches me. Enlighten me also, that I may
'Know' the Vanity-of the Goods-of this World, and the Immensity-of the Infinite Good, that Thou art. Make me also see the Deformity-of the Sins
I have Committed, that I may Humble myself and Detest them as I should, and on the other-hand, show me how-Worthy Thou art, because-of Thy Goodness,
that I should Love Thee with all my Heart. Make me 'Know' also, the Love Thou hast Borne me, that from this day forward, I may try to be Grateful-for
so much Goodness.
Secondly, give me a Firm Confidence of-Receiving Thy Merciful Pardon, for my Sins, Holy Perseverance, and finally, the
Glory-of-Heaven, through the Merits-of Jesus Christ, and the Intercession-of Mary.
Thirdly, give me a Great Love of Thee, which shall Detach-from the Love-of this World, and of myself, so that I may Love
none-other, but Thee, and may neither-Do nor-Desire anything else, but what is for Thy Glory.
Fourthly, I Beg-of thee a Perfect Resignation-to Thy Will, in Accepting-with-Tranquility: Sorrows, Infirmities, Contempt,
Persecutions, Aridity-of-Spirit, Loss-of-Property, of-Esteem, of-Relations, and every-other Cross, which shall Come-to me, from Thy Hands. I Offer
myself entirely to-Thee, that Thou mayest do with me, and all that Belongs-to me, what Thou Pleasest. Do Thou only give me Light and Strength to do
Thy Will, and especially at the Hour-of-Death, Help me to-Sacrifice my Life to-Thee, with all the Affection I am Capable-of, in-Union with the
Sacrifice which Thy Son Jesus Christ, made-of His Life, on the Cross, on Calvary.
Fifthly, I Beg-of Thee, a Great Sorrow for my Sins, which may make me Grieve-over them, as-long-as I Live, and Weep-for the Insults, I have Offered
Thee, the Sovereign Good, Who art Worthy-of Infinite Love, and Who hast Loved me, so-much.
Sixthly, I Pray Thee to-Give me the Spirit-of True Humility and Meekness, that I may Accept with-Peace, and even with-Joy, all
the Contempt, Ingratitude and Ill-Treatment, I may Receive. At the same-Time, I also Pray Thee to-Give me Perfect Charity, which shall make me
Wish-well, to-those who have done Evil to-me, and to-do what Good I can, at-least by Praying for-those who have in-any-way, Injured me.
Seventhly, I Beg Thee to-Give me Love-for the Virtue-of Holy Mortification, by which I may 'Chastise' my Rebellious Senses and
'Cross' my Self-Love; at the same-time, I Beg Thee to-Give me Holy Purity-of-Body, and the Grace to-Resist all Bad Temptations, by always having
Recourse-to Thee, and Thy most Holy Mother.
Give me Grace, Faithfully to-Obey my Spiritual Father, and all my Superiors, in all-things. Give me an Upright Intention,
that in all I Desire and Do, I may-Seek only Thy Glory, and to-Please Thee alone. Give me a Great Confidence-in the Passion-of Jesus Christ, and in the
Intercession-of Mary Immaculate. Give me a Great Love-for the Sacrament-of-the-Altar and a Tender Devotion and Love, to-Thy Holy Mother. Give me, I
Pray Thee, above all, Holy Perseverance and the Grace always to Pray-for it, especially in Time-of-Temptation and at the Hour-of-Death.
Lastly, I Recommend-to Thee, the Holy Souls-of Purgatory, my Relations and Benefactors, and in a special-manner, I Recommend-to
Thee all those who Hate me, or who have in-any-way Offended me; I Beg Thee to-Render them Good, for the Evil they have-Done or may Wish-to Do me. I
Recommend-to Thee, all Infidels, Heretics, and all Poor Sinners; give them Light and Strength to-Deliver themselves, from Sin.
O most-Loving God, make Thyself 'Known' and 'Loved' by all, but especially by those who have been more Ungrateful-to Thee,
than others, so that by Thy Goodness I may come one-day, to-Sing Thy Mercies in-Heaven, for my Hope is in the Merits-of Thy Blood, and in the
Mary, Mother of God, Pray-to Jesus for me. So I Hope. So may it be.
